Why the ming dynasty closed china off to any foreign influence?
The Ming Dynasty strongly believed in isolationism. In the 1430s, the Hongwu Emperor made Zheng He return from his voyages and entered a long period of isolationism. The Hongwu Emperor scuttled the ships and burnt the voyage's records. He banned all foreign trade. Since the Ming Dynasty was already thriving and was very self-sufficient, the emperor stopped all trade in China saying it needed nothing from the outside "barbarian" world. The main reason why Emperor Hongwu sent China into this long period, known as the dark ages of China, was since it was very expensive to manage the navy fleets when China's main threats were from the Mongols in the north.

The policy where the us was staying out of affairs of other countries is called?
There could be several terms that would define one nation staying out of the affairs of other nations. After World War I, the US entered a period of "isolationism" because of the thousands of US troops killed in the war that seemed to accomplish little, in the minds of the American public, and never did fulfill President Wilson's goal of making the world "safe for democracy." Non-intervention is another term that means not taking sides or getting involved in the affairs of another nation. Then there is also the term "neutral nation" when it refers to a nation that does not take sides during a war between other nations.

Asked in Roman Empire
This is the definitive reference of Roman History?
There is no one volume that could be called a definitive reference of Roman history. The period of history in which the Romans were dominant is long and changeable. It has many aspects, from domestic affairs, foreign affairs, military matters and technical affairs and these aspects changed with the times. One book or a set of books simply could not hold it all. For a good overview of Roman history one should start with the ancient writers and work up to the modern historians, paying attention to the footnotes and reference materials.
